    I have been involved in the Tourism industry since 1992 organizing Tours and Treks in Nepal, Tibet and Bhutan and have a wide range of experience in arranging expeditions to many of the Himalayan peaks. It has helped me a lot as the managing director of this company to create the variety of trips that directly benefit the local communities! Corporate responsibility at its best!

Nepal famous for hiking & trekking in the Himalayas and the Sagarmatha (Mount Everest in Nepali), the highest mountain in the world with 8848 meters, its natural beauty and its own cultures. Nepal is landlocked between India and China, covering an area of a little over 140.000 square kilometers. It has a population of approximately 30 million people of which 1 million live in it’s capital Kathmandu, home to to seven World Heritage Sites.  From the snow capped peaks of the high Himalayas to the teeming wildlife of the Terai jungles.

Nepali is the official language of Nepal; it is derived from Sanskrit and was formerly known as Khaskura. In the main touristic areas of Kathmandu valley, Lumbini, Chitwan and Pokhara most Nepali speak English so it is easy to get around.

Hinduism is the official religion of Nepal and Shiva is worshiped as the major deity. Islam, Buddhism, Jainism, and Christianity are the other religions practiced in the country.

The great Gautam Buddha, known as the Tathagata, was born in Lumbini, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Nowadays Lumbini is one of the many places of the Buddhist pilgrimage and is visited by people from all across the world.

The weather and climate vary from hot summers to severe winters and its topography and altitude. It ranges from the tropical to the arctic. In Spring (between March – May) the temperature is mildly warm in the low lands while moderate in higher altitudes with plenty of opportunities to have tryst with the mountain views. Summer (between June – August) is the monsoon season in Nepal. The weather is hot and wet at times. Monsoon in Nepal is not the typical monsoon of Asia. It mostly rains during night time leaving the sky clean and clear by the morning making the Himalayan view even more dramatic. Autumn (between September – November) is the best tourist season in Nepal. This is the peak season for hiking & trekking as mountain views are stunning and guaranteed. It is also the season of festivals as Nepal celebrates the biggest Hindu festival Dashain followed by Tihar.
In Winter (between December – February) the weather is cool and the sky is clear with occasional snowfalls at higher altitude. Perfect weather for hiking & trekking in the lower parts of the Himalayas. Mornings and nights are cold and the days are warm when sunny.

Nepal is the country of extremes. The low land plains of the Terai can have tropical temperatures where the Himalayas can get to sub-zero temperatures. The temperature of Kathmandu goes below 1 Degree Celsius (34 Degree Fahrenheit) in winter and rises to an average of 25 Degree Celsius (77 Degree Fahrenheit) in summer.
